senator carol migden to terminate the trust use restrictions on some of the seawall lots on south of market street. in order to get to residential and office types of uses we have to terminate the trust use restrictions that apply in state law. and the legislature did that. they found the seawall lots were no longer needed for water access. last year we worked with assemblyman tom ammiano and ab 26 49 signed into law by the governor december 29th this year. it found seawall lot [speaker not understood] north of market street is no longer needed for trust purposes and the legislation allowed the city to contemplate affordable housing at this site as part of an effort that would help to offset jobs housing, linkage fees owed after 70. that legislation also contemplates similar flexibility at seawall lot 37, which is in mission bay. this slide shows at 815 parcel. port staff is suggesting that seawall 2-21 is part of [speaker not understood] by ab 629 might be an appropriate site for affordable housing, but that would be subject to review under ceqa and further outreach to the surrou

, to the city attorney. >> yes, i'd be happy to answer that. deputy city attorney carol wong. the concern was the amount of money that we were showing as a true up going back to the agency and some of the concerns of whether or not that should really be used for transportation projects. and we agree wth the transportation authority that all the proceeds coming in from the sales of these properties were to be used for transportation projects. what i think the overlook was is at the time the agency bought these parcels we weren't sure what the purchase price was going to be. we knew the upper amount was going to be approximately $17-1/2 million, but it could be a lower amount and that lower amount would have been the difference between the funds received from all these different parcels and the cost to do the transportation projects and the ancillary projects that were listed in that resolution. when the transportation authority looked at this earlier, they were looking at money going back to the agency and thought that was money going to affordable housing instead of for transportation pur

not major storms yet. i'm talking about storms like hurricane carol, hurricane edna which were all greater storms as far as the category levels than sandy was, but this is part of a natural cycle. cheryl: this is a superstorm. the subway system, it's -- you know -- >> this is why the saffir-simpson scale is outdated. i have a scale that shows you the overall power of the storm, the pressure. what happens is, you may have less wind over a larger area, but it still pushes in. the pacific is cooling. the atlantic is warm. guess what? 1950s right up the coast. cheryl: joe has been living at fox business and fox news for the last 24 hours. thank you for all of your help. >> i appreciate it. cheryl: we really appreciated you helping us cover the hurricane. >> thank you. cheryl: coming up everybody, melissa francis and ashley webster will have a lot more on superstorm sandy and the path of destruction that's been left behind including this pennsylvania. pennsylvania governor, over a million people are without power in his state, he will be here. keep it here on fox business. bob... oh, hey alex.

, her name is carol loomis. she actually writes a lot of the annual report stuff for warren buffett, and she couldn't have been more wrong because this article was written to ring the death knoll for the hedge fund industry after the '68-'70 bear market. other than the mutual fund that i and michael, everyone got pretty severely beat up, okay? but today i could name 50 hedge funds that are over $10 billion. so the argument that the industry was over was totally wrong, you know, in that what is most striking to me, the largest hedge fund in 1968 was $220 million. start-ups are starting with billions of dollars today. so it's a cyclical growth industry, and if you produce the returns, you'll grow. and if you don't, you'll atrophy. it's a little like darwinism, right? survival of the fittest. so don't think if you go into the business that it's just up, up, up, up and no hiccups along the way. what separates the men from the boys is how you do in periods of adversity and how you deal with it. in the last 20 years i've had three years where i've had losses for my investors. difficult, i

during the prime area we are talking about the battleground states of iowa. carol is on the democratic line. caller: i want to ask the gentleman what was his response when the man came out talking about the rape issue and our people in iowa taking that in, whether they even big about the fact that their daughters could be put in harm's way with somebody making a broad statement like that? guest: well, i think voters in the state take those kinds of issues very seriously. i think that any comment about that will have an effect on the campaign. this is a state where something like 80% of iowa residents are regular turn to attendees. about 80% of the state is injured somewhere or other on sunday mornings. -- in church. so these types of issues tend to resonate with them. they have different views about them, but they care about them. so those issues have a lot of impact in iowa. i think that iowa voters tend to react on a gut level to those types of issues, but they do react. host: let's hear from mark in des moines on our independent line. caller: i've been watching the election closely
